Wrestlers are all kinda gay in a way.
They hug each other a lot, tell each other they love them, walk around naked all the time it is very weird at times. I could go on.
And yes you can include my old man in all that stuff.

I'm gonna have to write something one day on wrestling subculture.


Its not being gay because you hug someone OR say you love them, Its a brotherhood.....You build a bond with them because of how you become able to trust each other with your very lives. If one thing in the ring goes wrong it could end up being life threatening and because of the trust you build alot of deep bonds with the guys.

I would enjoy AJ Styles in ROH. I think he'd have some great matches there, but I fear the money would be severely lacking.

He's already been there done that, I would hate to see him HAVE to go back there

send hogan and the gang packing the early days were the best the mexican connection. aj styles, christopher daniels, kaz, samoa joe, angle, kaz, the canadans, morgan, amazing red. etal.

All Hogan and his " associates " have done to TNA is try to remake WCW, I liked WCW in the late 's but its dead and gone....let it go. TNA could have been sooo much more by now if it wasnt for Hogan and such

He no doubt could have made it to 100! Wink

Seriously, does anyone remember if there were any accusations when Savage passed?

I was very suprised at the fact that i didnt hear ANYTHING about this when Randy passed...

Media looking for way to tie this to steroids...

They do this with EVERY death in Pro Wrestling.......We have a very bad rep for this

Thx man

Yeah i mean i wish i could like him, I have tried in the past to get into liking Flair but just doesnt seem to work..... I do however love the promos that he would cut while in the four horsemen in the 80's " I got the 4 horseman DVD " Awesome collection there but still i would always seem to be drawn more toward tully and arn than i was Ric.

Actually when i spent some time in a promotion up in Michigan there was a little group of us that just couldnt stand him.....Honestly it's weird for me too, For quite awhile i had a fear of saying anything negative about flair around these guys but then we all became pretty close and it just came out one day at one of my buddies house when the promotion for Flair Triple DVD set collection came out. There were guys in the group that thought otherwise but they were even younger than me so all they really knew about the sport is what they had seen growing up in the 90's.

I even had a buddy so young that he thought it was all garbage except the ECW stuff in the late 90's " Hes only about 22 or so now lol. So i guess we just all have different impressions of guys depending on what and more importantly WHEN we saw it.

Not even a decent bump?  I am really not following. He took every finisher/spot during his era that any other wrestler of that time did. A ton of press slams from Sting, Luger, Warriors, etc...  And I do have to say suffering a broken back and was still willing to do it. 

It is just interesting to me that someone who is obviously a more serious fan would dislike Flair.  One thing I will say is that you are a bit younger than me and most likely only remember Flair after 1990 or so.  His work in the 90's and later was a shadow on the 70's and especially mid 80's.

I did watch a few matches of his older work recently and i can now say yeah i guess he could take a bump when he wanted to, Just still man idk i just cant seem to like the guy lol, Serious fan for sure hell i even worked in the ring with some indy guys in Michigan for a few years until i broke my back......My entire lifes dream was to become a famous worker but the back just took that away.

Like i said i respect him but just cant like him, Not trying to take anything away from him because he has had a very famous and storied career. Just not a fan

I can deal with self absorbed guys in the sport " Steiner " is one of my favorites lol, But i seriously just plain flat out cannot stand Flair and never have been able to....I would say it might be because he's from older days in the sport but there are so many from that time that i like.

And by taking bumps im not saying he cant because he didnt fall 20 feet from a ladder through a table to the floor or anything but ive just never seen him even take a decent bump just from his feet to the canvas. Guys dont get me wrong i RESPECT Flair for what he's done and where he's been but he's just not one of the all time greats in my eyes.

Really like Rude too.  He was a great tt with Manny Fernandez in the NWA.

I really dont see any difference in the bumps Flair took compared to Roberts.  Flair was routinely press slammed, etc... which at the time was a "big" bump.  He took whatever the finishers were at the time. Not to mention being one of the best juicers ever.  

idk man i just never saw Flair ever take a decent bump in all the matches ive seen of his.....Maybe i missed something? Just never got him, Maybe its just one of those things that for no reason at all i just cant stand the guy, Besides him being so self absorbed to try and sell phone call recordings doesnt exactly help my image of the guy lol....
10  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 24, 2013, 11:58:41 AM
Hey i didnt say that HBK was in my top 5 for his personality back stage lol, As for Roberts i always really liked him while growing up especially his stuff with Savage They had some really good matches, unlike flair he could actually bump. I dont care if they ever took huge bumps or anything just if they could bump good at all " Flair never took a decent bump until his late stuff in wwe " As for Edge, He was a very innovative talent one of the best WWE has had in recent memory.....Every title reign was full of classic heel controversy in one way or another accept his win over Ziggler, His promos werent the best but always VERY entertaining.

I dont think i have to explain Savage OR Hennig lol

Rick Rude was a very close top 5 for me i almost listed him but i just remember more from Roberts.
11  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 24, 2013, 07:39:10 AM

Randy Savage
Jake Roberts
Curt Hennig

Yeah no shit right
14  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 22, 2013, 11:23:30 PM
Now nobody can cut a decent promo, zero ring psychology and a revolving door on non entertaining turds.  With VERY few exceptions. 


I totally agree with you here
15  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 21, 2013, 10:09:23 PM

I feel similar about Dusty Rhodes.

Yeah i never got that about him either, I mean its like if you could cut a decent/good promo back then you were pushed....Eh different times indeed
16  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 20, 2013, 10:13:42 PM

THAT'S the most important aspect!

And, he did it among the best of anyone else in the business with the skills he had. It didn't matter if he couldn't or wouldn't take bigger bumps; he didn't have to. There are guys who did crazier shit, but it never had anywhere near the meaning of Flair's ring work.

Undertaker's suicide dive isn't anything spectacular compared with the trampoline acts done by RVD, the Hardee's, Sabu, etc., but Taker gives his spot just as much - if not more - meaning the one night per year he does it.

Ric's work held up then, and continues to hold up today, because of who he is. Somebody new would not likely get the same mileage out of any of Ric's material. That's an impressive accomplishment!


I know story telling is a VERY important part of being a great Professional Wrestler but i just never seen Ric as one of the greatest of all time, I respect him for what he has done, Still i just cant get the fascination with him......and never will.

If you like him then good for you but he ( For some reason ) has always annoyed the hell outta me....idk man
17  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 20, 2013, 11:19:40 AM

Only God can save you now, friend!!

 Shocked Shocked Grin

LMAO ive just never understood why people mark out for flair....Sure he could tell a story in the ring but otherwise he was shit
18  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 20, 2013, 11:17:44 AM
When Flair first joined the Federation it was one of the best times of my life. Then when he teamed with Perfect to me it couldn't have gotten any better! But then it was all down hill from there. I think the guy did a great job but he's not one of the all time greats. The guy never carried the Federation. I continually hear about his days in the other wrestling organizations and how great he was. So if he was that great, was he past his prime once he joined the Federation?

To be honest man Flair imo never had a prime, He could never bump for shit, Constantly had better athletes than him putting him over when it should have been vice versa...... I have never been able to stand flair, And now he's selling phone calls? WTF Flair?
19  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Darren Young comes out on: September 20, 2013, 11:12:42 AM
I called this from day one of him being on NXT....Good for him tho and i hope the guys are supporting him
20  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: TNA..WTF on: September 20, 2013, 11:11:03 AM
They should go back to how they werte running the show when angle and styles were having those amazing matches against one another and even with samoa joe.......Those were the best days of TNA imho
21  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: strength of some wrestlers. on: September 20, 2013, 11:06:58 AM

After setting up many a rings, I'm calling bullshit. Gotta be a work - even if it was some kind of half-assed home made ring.

Im with ya man....Those ring frames even without the beams,padding etc. are no joke they're heavy as hell
22  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Any AJ Lee nudes anywhere? on: September 20, 2013, 07:36:31 AM
This is a good look for her current character, a sexy little badass.




She is so beautiful
23  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: RVD is back on: September 18, 2013, 06:43:00 AM
I think Vince didn't sign him because of his extreme way of wrestling ..
He would of embarrassed the whole roster ..
he has tone it down a lot compared to his early ECW days

Word for word this is what i was gonna say lol
24  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Is Ric Flair worth it? on: September 18, 2013, 06:40:19 AM
I read he owes a lot of cash in back taxes and is selling memorabilia.  Then I saw this..LOL  I will always be a Ric Flair fan but this is outrageous.

You could probably catch him at a bar and buy him a beer and get way more conversation.

What a POS, Never personally liked Flair myself. Kinda like Hogan in certain ways Example neither one could ever bump for shit, Hella story teller tho.
25  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Who do you hate? on: September 18, 2013, 06:34:59 AM
You an Ole Big would get along great.
